The Teamsters Union is offering a $10,000 reward for any information leading to the whereabouts of Sierra Shields, a flight attendant missing since Jan. 14 in a mysterious case that has baffled investigators.

Shields was a member of the flight crew for Shuttle America for Delta and United Airlines flights, and is a member of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.

As we previously reported, Shields showed up at LGA for work on the morning of Jan. 14 but, strangely, handed in her equipment and resigned before exiting the airport on her own. She has not been seen since.

"Right now, it's difficult to see what happened when she left the terminal," Chris Shields, Sierra's father, told Dateline. "It's a real mystery at this point, but we can't give up."

“The Teamsters are deeply concerned about the recent developments surrounding Ms. Shields. Today we demonstrate our continued commitment to finding her,” Jim Hoffa, Teamsters General President, said in a statement. “We are offering a reward of $10,000 to anyone who gives the authorities information that leads to the discovery of her whereabouts. It is imperative that we find her. If anybody has information that can help us do this, we ask that he or she please come forward.”

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Sierra’s family,” added Capt. David Bourne, Director of the Teamsters Airline Division. “As a union, we look out for our own. Sierra and her family need help at this time. If anyone has seen her or has information relevant to this missing person case, please contact the proper authorities as soon as possible. You can also help by sharing her picture and information on social media.”

If you have seen Sierra Shields or have information relevant to this missing person case, please call the New York City Police Department Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-8477.
